Namibia is famous for its impressive fauna, vast interior desert and extreme natural phenomena. Proud of its moving high red sand dunes, its largest underground lake, its highest population of cheetah and legendary desert elephants and its second largest canyon in the world. Namibia happily surprises its visitors with a wide range of diverse and stunning landscapes as well as a variety of incredible sports. What is missing? ... You!

In this lesser known southern African country, the diversity of desert landscapes - the one even more stunning than the next - is breathtaking. At the wheel of your car, you will roam vast plains often without meeting another living human soul. This is a journey rich in emotion during which you may even encounter part of yourself that remained out of view before. Come and find your bearings!
